After looking up the error code C:31:22, I saw all of the solutions for slapping the side of the camera. Slapped it 4 times, then the error code switched to C:31:23. Same solution... Whacked it 4 times, then the error code switched to C:31:40. Again, whacked it 4 times. Opened it up, turned it upside down and a rubber roller dropped out of the camera. I could see where it went, snapped it down on its metal peg and it works fine. Looks like its the rubber rollers that guide the tape that gets stuck. Before whacking it, make sure the RUBBER roller moves freely. Good luck!!!

After not using my camera (Sony HVR-V1U) for one week, I took it out for an assignment but the error keeps coming up C:31:40 asking me to eject the cassette. The camera never gave me problems before this.I have tried smacking it at the bottom with the flat of my hand, flowing it with a hair dryer, shaking it, opening the cassette door for hours but nothing seems to work. The sony technician says I may have to send it in for repairs can any one help before I have to resort to this?

Hi there,
The symptoms you told shows the defect in control jog switch and its available as "control switch block". If you wish, I can give you its part number.

Usually letting the unit open for a day in a dry environment is enough to resolve this problem. If you have done this and still get the message your moisture sensor is bad and needs replaced. It is in the vicinity of the video drum assembly. I don't know if you are capable of making this repair but any good repair shop should be able to fix it for less than $100 US. Good luck.

It could very well be a blown fuse, and if you have some experience working inside these devices you can open it up, give it a try, and you might save a little on repair costs. Pull out the power supply board, and look for any obvious burns. Fuses are marked with a prefix PS on sony devices. check if they transfer current, if not - order new ones and see if replacing them solves your problem, or if it spread further. Good luck
